Hellcats – Savannah/Marti Fanvid

Marti/Savannah are my new, subtexty, never-gonna-actually-happen-but-at-least-there’s-fanfic couple. You can find them on the CW’s Hellcats.

My friend Julia sent me this video and I felt compelled to share it.

Rizzoli & Isles Subtexty Recap of 1.10 “When the Gun Goes Bang, Bang, Bang”

There’s a lot of banging in this episode. Not the good kind, unfortunately. And so, we begin this episode in a dark place. I mean, literally in a dark place, although perhaps symbolically it is also a dark place. This show has many layers.

Oh hey! I know her!


She’s Anna from Itty Bitty Titty Committee! Remember when she used to dress like this?


She was such a good girl. And then she discovered lesbianism, painted her hair, hijacked the news and made out with a girl. So, now, obviously, she’s a crack addict. Let that be a lesson to all of you.

Rizzoli & Isles

Rizzoli & Isles Subtexty Recap of 1.09 “The Beast In Me”

I must confess that before hitting “play” on this episode, the following conversation took place:

Me: I’m a little worried there won’t be any subtext in this episode.

K: That’s like … an impossibility.


So, we begin with a murder. Just your average, middle-of-the-night, icepick-in-the-brain homicide. La de da. Not to worry, though, because Rizzoli is on the case the very next morn, only she can’t touch the car because they’re still waiting on a warrant because all the judges in Boston are still passed out drunk from last week’s Rizzoli & Isles Drinking Game. So, there’s a traffic jam and there are angry people honking their horns because everyone knows that the sound emitted from a horn while in direct combination with yelling and cursing instantly opens a portal into a magical land where All Your Wishes Come True.


Rizzoli: Hey, man, shut up!

Grumpy Rizzoli is grumpy. There’s a crime scene, a dead guy, and no Maura.

Rizzoli: Where’s Maura?

Frost: Stuck in traffic.

Rizzoli: She shouldn’t wear high heels to a crime scene.

Someone please explain to me what high heels have to do with getting stuck in traffic. Is there a correlation? Is this the secret to not getting stuck in traffic? Who else knows about this?

Rizzoli & Isles

Rizzoli & Isles Twitter Style (because the subtext is everywhere…)

Since half the lesbical Internet is already covering the subtext recaps, I’m gonna share some of the subtext tweets, because these characters are incapable of exchanging words – on-screen or off – without making lesbians everywhere go “!!!!”

And in case anyone forgot what “undercover clothes” they’re talking about:


Yes, that outfit was too … it was so… Where were we?


Harsh, Isles, making her sleep on the floor for giving some other woman her number. You could’ve at least made her sleep on the couch.


I believe that’s called “a date.” And since you’re already extending it from drinks to dinner, might as well make it a sleepover. Hell, just move in together.


I can’t even.


Maura wrote a “tasting note” on Jane. It’s just too … it is so… Anyway.

Further Reading: That last exchange inspired this awesome fanfic: “Under Covers Champion,” which I wholeheartedly recommend.
